NEWSLETTER : July 2017 Online Edition 86



Buck Hollow Farm, Vermont

Yes,  it’s the hazy lazy days of summer at the inn.  The water is very swimmable in the pool,  birds are chirping everywhere,  guests are catching up on their reading while soaking up the sun,  others are taking a day trip to Montreal while even others are exploring Shelburne Museum.  Elmo and Grover, our resident Springer Spaniels,  eagerly await the arrival of guests dogs and proceed to wear them out with their boundless energy.
Those are just a few of the options which are open and available to our guests.  Hiking,  lake swimming,  poking around Burlington,  St. Albans,  Stowe or other villages are just a few of the others.
We offer Canadians a 20% discount to help them overcome their currency exchange and are also pleased to offer AAA,  CAA,  AARP and military discounts of 10%.  For any of these discounts we do need payment to be by cash or check.

A reminder to all that we have WIFI throughout the property,  satellite TV,  air-conditioned rooms and private baths for all rooms and will accommodate almost any dietary requirement. Finally,  as an inducement to return,  we give a BUCK HOLLOW BUCKS for every night a guest is here when the reservation has been made directly with us ( by phone or through the website).  Each buck is worth $ 5.00 off any future visit. They are transferable, can be combined,  and do not expire.

Tired Grover

It's Elmo here and I'm writing this as Grover takes some much needed R & R.
Not only are Mom and Dad busy, but Grover and I are busy playing with guest dogs, cooling off in our kiddy dog pool, chasing birds, and our cats who chase birds.
The summer weather also means Mom installs the doggy door so we can go in and out as we please. There is more running, playing and barking...until the dreaded water bottle comes out to keep us quiet.
We love getting wet and cooling off in the kiddy pool, but we don't like to be out in the rain, and we HATE being sprayed by that dreaded spray bottle.
It's the DOG DAYS of summer.Literally!
